Every woman needs to have the answers to three basic questions when considering her pregnancy options. We offer a pretermination evaluation which helps answer these questions:
- Am I really pregnant? 31% of pregnancies end on their own. Since a positive pregnancy test cannot medically confirm that you are pregnant, we need to do an ultrasound to confirm that you have a viable (living and growing) pregnancy.
- If I am pregnant, how far along am I? Knowing exactly how far along you are determines what type of abortion you can get an how much it will cost. This is done using an ultrasound scan.
- Is it important to know if I have a Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD)? Yes, a woman with a common STD, such as chlamydia, if left untreated prior to an abortion, puts her future reproductive health at risk due to an increase risk of infection complications. We offer free STD testing!
|Until you have had an ultrasound exam, you can estimate how far along you are based on your last menstrual period date (LMP). Count the number of weeks from the first day of your last period to the current date to estimate how far along you are. You can then use the links to the right to learn more about the abortion procedures you may be eligible to receive.(We do not perform or refer for abortions)||
